This place is simply awesome. I have done a lot of traveling in my day, and I can honestly say this is the cleanest and nicest hostel I've stayed at. The prices to stay are cheap. The staff is super friendly, Jordans the man, Pauls the man, Jennis the woman, Kongs totally rad, Kay is the woman, all of them are super helpful and work their butts off. The drinks get you pissed, and its an all around good atmosphere with good people from all over the world and good music. Its on a main street so its just a short walk, or if you decide to rent one of their scooters, a short scoot, to any place to eat, or go to for the pool parties or half, full moon parties. If you walk just 2 minutes straight out of the hostel you will find yourself standing on beach white sandy beach with beautiful blue water. The staff knows the island super well and will point you in the direction of any adventure you're looking for: parties, elephants, zip lines, secret beaches, etc. Sometimes, they will even take you on a private island tour. Furthermore, the cleanliness is impeccble.The sheets, blankets, pillows/cases and towels are new, clean and washed frequently. The showers provide hot water and are also very clean. There are different rooms to stay in and all have air conditioning, which when its 85 outside is nice to enjoy. I highly recommend this place if you come to Koh Phangan.

This hostel is great whether your quiet and want to chill for a few days or if you want to get right in and party. Comfy beds and pillow. The people who run the hostel are all friendly and helpful to everyone indiscriminately especially the asian/canadian guy.
There is a great little bar attached to the hostel and it seems to be the place to be during a full moon party or a half moon party. Its absolutely spotless and constantly being cleaned, soaps and shampoos supplied and their not the cheap garbage usally in hostels, beach nearby and you can use the facilities of all the posh places for free and nobody seems to bother you. Lovely food market nearby open until 11/12 and you can eat really well for 60baht..
if your on a budget you need to stay here.

Room Tip: the room to the front doesnt have air con and some people find it a bit noisy.. but i thought it was fine.

Stayed at Ringside for 2 weeks! Had a awesome time! The night life here was rockin. Ringside was alwasy the busiest place on the strip. The staff and the owners were really great people. They were very friendly and a lot of fun to hang with. Rooms were cleaned every single day. Location was great, beaches and restaurants are nearby and the hostel is central located on the island.

Recommend staying here for sure :)

This was my first time touring Thailand, and Ringside Hostel was by far the highlight of my trip.
The staff welcomed me, and all other guests with open arms upon arrival; creating a distinct family atmosphere. Kudos to Paul, Jordan, Lena, Kong and Jessica for their genuine hospitality. Charm beach is located a stones throw away, and is a great place to relax during the day. For those wanting to be active, Kobra Muay Thai is a mere 2 minute walk (they offer training sessions at various times during the day).

The rooms, and bathrooms are very clean, and secure. There are also lockers available upone request. Since Ringside is away from Haad Rin, I had no problems sleeping at all.

I cannot stress enough the awesome family atmosphere. On Christmas day, we had a traditional dinner at the neighbouring restaurant. I met tons of people from all over the world at Ringside, and am happy to have gained new friendships.

Paul knew of all the best parties to attend at night, and he definitely made sure that we were feeing nice before we left. The beer pong tables at the front of the hostel provided some of the more memorable moments of my stay (BOOM!). Also, the staff always ensured that our entire group had transport to all parties.

Without a doubt, I plan on returning to Ringside Hostel in Koh Phangan. I had the best time of my life there.

Big Shout out to Paul and his Trash Can Shooter #BOOOM!!!
